I’m seriously running out of shelf space now at home. The collection was originally planned to run to 70 models plus a few specials but it will end up being double this, maybe even more. So a decision is looming up – do I keep everything on display, cramming and spreading across surfaces, or do […]Read more "Klingon D5-Class Battlecruiser"
It’s been over a month since my last post, not because I’m lazy (though I am) but thanks to a very belated delivery of ships, two months worth at once in fact. I now have in my possession a Klingon D5 Class Battlecruiser, Vidiian Warship, USS Jenolan, Smuggler’s Vessel and an Altamid Swam Ship. The […]Read more "Altamid Swarm Ship"
The Bajorans are surprisingly well represented considering their ships are, well, crap. That is the point of course as the Bajorans are left with an outdated and decrepit fleet after the Cardassian occupation. The Antares class freighter is one of these outdated and under-powered ships, yet it is warp capable and seem to be well […]Read more "Bajoran Freighter"
In my shuttlecraft second set review eagle-eyed commenter DradusContact spotted the Type 15 had an incorrect registry. To me surprise Eaglemoss delivered on a small Facebook message that they would send out replacements! Today I received a brand new Type 15 with the correct NCC-1701 registry on the front. You can see the original at the […]Read more "Type 15 Shuttlepod Re-issue"
It’s always a nice surprise to come across a ship I haven’t heard of before and even more so when that ship has an interesting design. The USS Horizon is such a ship, a pre-Enterprise but post-NX-01 class not even seen in the TV series except for a small model in Deep Space Nine. Its […]Read more "Issue 100: USS Horizon"
This model can fall into two possible categories, non-Starfleet human ships and Borg. The latter is certainly more fitting and I’m pleased to report that this is probably the best Borg model in the collection. This is not a difficult accolade to achieve as the previous models have been particularly poor. We’ve had the Borg […]Read more "Assimilated Arctic One"
You may think you’ve seen this ship already early on in the collection. That was the USS Equinox, the Nova class Starfleet vessel way back in issue 15. The USS Rhode Island is a refitted Nova class, very similar to the Equinox with only a few minor changes. It is different enough that the models […]Read more "USS Rhode Island"
